I am sending you the proofs.
If the No. is full up (i.e., if there is quite enough copy), put it out at once. (Arrange the articles at your discretion: “Defeat”—editorial. )
If you have room, insert the enclosed postscript to the article “State of Affairs”.
After this No. we shall immediately issue the next, carrying the article on pacifism (has it been set up?). Write without delay, how much copy you have for this (next) issue and how much you are short of!
